When planning an outdoor event in the Metro Detroit area, especially during the transitional seasons of fall and early spring, it’s crucial to think ahead about temperature. Michigan’s weather can be unpredictable, with warm afternoons often leading to chilly evenings. While these seasons offer scenic beauty, from fall foliage to spring blossoms, they can also bring unexpected cold snaps. Our outdoor heater rentals are specifically designed to counteract these challenges, making sure your guests stay warm and comfortable regardless of the season or type of get-together, from corporate functions to residential weddings.

Whether you’re hosting an autumnal wedding with a rustic theme, a company Halloween party, or a spring birthday celebration, our outdoor heater rentals will allow you to extend your event’s duration into the evening without worrying about guests getting cold. We have two sizes to accommodate various-sized groups: our 70,000 BTU Propane Heater and 170,000 BTU Propane Heater, both tent-friendly and easily portable. With the addition of a tent heater rental, transform a chilly, uncomfortable space into a cozy, inviting atmosphere, encouraging guests to relax, mingle, and fully enjoy the occasion.

If you know it’s going to be a day with warmer weather, you may want to be prepared with some of our tent accessories such as renting a fan for your tent. For more information, including the selection of tent heater rentals that we offer and the pricing for each, look through our online catalog.
